   Mary Beth Collins, the executive director of Dane County Court Appointed Special Advocates, said Dave Bowden of Market Street Diner created the gingerbread man as part of the "Gingerbread Cookie Factory" fundraiser at the Hilldale Mall in Madison.

   "This was a goal he had," Collins said. "To create the world's tallest gingerbread man. So Dane County CASA approached him to see if he would do it, and he agreed, and here we are today."

The event also included a gingerbread house decorating competition and performance by members of the UW marching band. It took more than a week to bake the Largest Gingerbread Man.
  The cookie factory, which will be open the first three Saturdays in December, will allow children to decorate their own gingerbread cookies to raise funds for CASA, which advocates for children in abusive situations.

  The Largest Gingerbread Man it's a fundraiser for the Dane County CASA program. It stands for the Count Appointed Special Advocated. They offer a voice for abused children in Dane County.

   Madison-area companies were invited to participate in a gingerbread house or “casa” decorating competition.

   A gingerbread man is a cookie made of gingerbread, usually in the shape of a stylized human, as per the name although making other shapes, especially seasonal themes, is quite common.

    Most gingerbread men share the same roughly humanoid shape, with stubby feet and no fingers. Many gingerbread men have a face, though whether the features are indentations within the face itself or other candies stuck on with icing or chocolate varies from recipe to recipe.

 The Largest Gingerbread Man baked in Madison beat the previous Gunness world record set in Oslo, Norway.
